    OFFGRID and any other member down hurricane Harvey way... stay safe!! It looks SUPER scary...Hopefully you've battened down the hatches, or better yet gotten the hell outta dodge. Wish you all the best of luck. My thoughts are with you.

    Same here. I was thinking the same thing. Awesome Mafia Mama Lisa. To all our members in the path of Harvey. Out thoughts are with you. Stay safe our friends.
    I live at the Jersey Shore. We got hit the hardest with Sandy. And that wasn't even a hurricane when it hit. I know what you guys are about to go thru. My prayers are with you.

    It is the week of downpour that will get us here in Houston. Not looking forward to a week trapped in a house with 3 crazy kids and soon to be insane wife. So we hightailed it 250 miles west to parents ranch and maybe get some wheeling in. Thanks for the concern.

    Dang, big storm! It found us west of Austin. No wheeling for me. Don't like mud!

    Saw you posted on another thread recently. Good to see your still with us OFFGRID.

    I've been watching the News. Man, you guys got hit hard. Looks like worse than we got hit here in NJ with Sandy. Corpus Christy and near by towns are just about gone. I'm sure neighboring states will start heading that way to help. When Sandy hit us. I remember seeing Power Company trucks from NC, NY, PA, and other states. I didn't have power for 7 days. Sucked, but you learn to deal with it. I'm sure help is on the way.

    Yep both my rent house and my house have water in them. I guess all Jeep projects will have to be placed on hold.

    Most important things are family, loved ones and yourself are safe and sound. Jeeps as you know are built and can be rebuilt. It looks to be a heck of a storm. Glad to hear all is well as can be.
